With a sure skill, Frank Clune weaves history and contemporary fact into an exciting and significant pattern that will delight armchair travellers who accompany him on this unusual tour through Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Austria and Greece, by plane, train and jeep wagon.

But this book is much more than an entertaining travel book.  The primary reason for Mr Clune's European journey was to learn something about the work of IRO, to visit the migrant camps and to see "displaced persons" go through the initial stages that prepared them to become new Australians.

His shrewd appraisal of the people and the camps is an informative and discerning as his criticisms of some European customs are pungent.  The hopes of the chosen migrants and the despair of the rejected present a human drama of extreme poignancy.
